On tap at golden Valley brewing. Pours out a golden topped with a white head. Nose is a nice pine some floral hops and a little sweet caramel malt. Taste is more of the pine floral hop combo and a biscuit malt.

Brentv (657) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2016
On tap at the Golden Valley Pub in Beaverton, OR. Yellow orange pour with a thick white head. Aroma and taste of muted citrus fruits with pine. A bit bitter, no real sweetness. Thin, but maybe Im confusing the mouthfeel with the flavor. This is no better than average and not my beer.

On tap at Golden Valley, pours a hazy pale golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops and just enough biscuity malt to back. Flavour is very clean, with piney hops, some fruity and floral notes, and just enough biscuity malt backbone. Clean and hoppy, with excessive drinkability.

Draft - Sweet grapefruit and pine. Clear gold and a decent white head. Bright grapefruit notes and a nice pithy bitter finish. Solid.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 Keg at the Beaverton brewpub, 11/11/14. Lightly hazed golden orange with a moderate off white head. Nose is caramel malt forward, candied fruit peel, light tropicana, sweet tunes. Taste comprises caramel malt, light orange, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Medicore IPA, just about ticks the style boxes, pretty dull.

On tap in Beaverton. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A nice nose of caramel and pine. The flavor is a clear easygoing light IPA with low bitterness, dry, caramel, pine and light lemon. Enjoyable.

Bomber. Weak. Not sure how they call this an IPA. Cheap...you get what you pay for here. Id rather spend another $.60 and get a hop stoopid or something with flavor.

On tap at the brewpub. A mild India Pale Ale. Not much of a bitter finish. Average at best.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 25, 2011
22 oz bottle. Amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma of biscuit dough, citrus and flowers. Malty flavor, toast and bread with a medium to low bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly syrupy mouth feel. Decent IPA, bit sweet and low on hops but still alright.
